Radiohead - All I Need

This is a new Radiohead video, and it's pretty good.  Radiohead's In Rainbows actually gets better with every subsequent listen, and I'd be submitting this for SLS consideration except we only allow one song per artist and I'm reserving that spot for "Jigsaw Falling Into Place". It's two children with

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's Medley

Do you remember the Sean Connery movie Finding Forrester?  It wasn't a bad little film, I recall enjoying it at the time, but today the first thing I remember about the movie is the song that played during the closing credits. It was "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" and "What A

My Own Prison

In addition to My Hootastic Cross to Bear I must confess to another guilty pleasure from the 1990s.  I'm throwing this out there in the hopes that my full disclosure will absolve me from all sin. In 1997, Christian-ish rock band Creed released their debut album My Own Prison.  Creed

My Ten Favourite Duets

retroCRUSH posted the best duets ever, so I've decided to follow their lead and throw down my top ten duets. I've disqualified all duets from bands that are naturally duets.  For example, Simon & Garfunkel, Sonny & Cher and Stars.  Here are my favourite ten. 10. Eminem and Dido -

Winding Down With Scotch Mist

I'm emotionally drained.  Today I attended a company breakfast and some speeches, attended a funeral, visited the cemetery, attended the reception, met up with some colleagues for more speeches and a seemingly never ending dinner at Canyon Creek filled with good food and big laughs. I'm winding down with Scotch

Take Me To The Riot

One of my favourite songs of the year is "Take Me To The Riot" from Stars.  It's just a great little ditty.  Here's the video. The Stars are responsible for one of my favourite songs of all-time.  I don't remember the last time I synced my iPod without including "Your

You Scumbag, You Maggot

I shared The Pogues' "Fairytale of New York" earlier in the month as a weekly MP3.  Normally I only host MP3s for seven days before yanking them, but dammit, this is Christmas, so you can still grab it if you haven't already. If you can't wait to hear this holiday

Bring the Noise

After hearing It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back for the first time, I couldn't believe my ears.  I had finally found music that got my heart pumping, my head banging and my mind racing all at once.  A standout track on that phenomenal album is "Bring

The Original Mr. Metro

While riding the subway today, I called myself "Mr. Metro".  The dialogue in my head was about eco-friendly modes of transportation and with metro being the French word for subway, the term Mr. Metro came naturally.  (Note to self: check yourself into a mental institution for observation). So I'm calling

Record Body Count by Rheostatics

During Thanksgiving turkey at my mom's house, the conversation turned to The Rheostatics.  Actually, the conversation turned to Old Mill Donuts and then The Rheostatics, but the devil is in the details. I told Steve my favourite Rheostatics song was "Record Body Count" and promised to share the video in
